title = "The Half-Half Plot",

abstract = "The Half-Half (HH) plot is a new graphical method to investigate qualitatively the shape of a regression curve. The empirical HH-plot counts observations in the lower and upper quarter of a strip that moves horizontally over the scatter plot. The plot displays jumps clearly and reveals further features of the regression curve. We prove a functional central limit theorem for the empirical HH-plot, with rate of convergence 1=p n. In a simulation study the good performance of the plot is demonstrated. The method is also applied to two case studies.",
